Maybe it’s my undying love of spring and summer footwear, or just my abhorrence of canvas Toms (love the giving-back-to-charity thing, not so much the style), but either way, I totally the love the idea of espadrille flats. I first became obsessed with the trend sometime last year when they emerged on the scene in time for Spring/Summer 2011, and clearly, they don’t seem to have any plans of fading as a fad any time soon! Through the warmer seasons ahead, the 2012 takes continue to be simple and comfy yet undoubtedly cute and feminine, allowing more active ladies stay on their feet while still looking stylish. Whether your vibe is nautical for spring, more understated for everyday, or full-on flashy, you’re bound to find an espadrille flat to suit your fancy! Sure, some of them are still a little too Toms-shaped for my taste, but for all you Toms lovers out there â€“ I’m compromising!
